[X-23] was originally created by writer Craig Kyle for the X-Men: Evolution television series before debuting in the NYX comic series in 2004. […] The characterization went for the opposite of Wolverine, where instead of a man “older than we know” with no memory of his past and the life that he lost, X-23 was a young girl “shackled to the murders she’s committed” whose entire life revolved around the project that made her a killer. Kyle added that the character is “Pinocchio for Marvel Comics, she’s a samurai sword trying to become a real little girl.”
JAMIE CHUNG CAST AS BLINK IN FOX’S ‘X-MEN’ TV SHOW!
Jamie Chung has been cast as Blink in the as-of-yet untitled upcoming ‘X-Men’ TV show. The show is being produced by the same team at Marvel Television that produced ‘Legion’ for FX. So far the show only has a pilot order, with FOX hoping to green-light an entire series!
It’s a shame that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is one of the worst superhero films ever made, because it also contains one of the best superhero films never made: right there during the opening credits.
In the first couple minutes of Origins, we’re treated to a montage of Wolverine and Sabretooth fighting alongside one another through a series of battles plucked straight out of your 10th grade history class. They survive an infantry charge during the American Civil War, a nighttime raid on German trenches during WWI, Omaha Beach during the D-Day invasion, and even their own execution during the Vietnam War.
Screw a two-hour movie – that’s an amazing TV series. Wolverine and Sabretooth, surly, stubbled, almost literally grizzly immortal soldiers bantering their way through every war in history – and also claw-mauling Nazis. Plus, for long-term drama: Comic book readers know these literal brothers in arms eventually become bitter enemies – imagine experiencing that heartbreak firsthand, after binge-watching several seasons of manly super-bonding. Instead, we got the worst possible version of Deadpool: One literally without a mouth. Whose brilliant idea was that? And how fucking fired are they? We hope it’s “a lot.”
